. stimulating the economy, expanding welfare programs and government aid has done nothing to lower poverty levels among blacks and hispanics. it's something a few black thought leaders have tried to tackle. they say that the obama administration has ignored the plight of blacks and the poor in favor of corporate welfare and business interests. this is where conservatives should redirect their attention. a compassionate message combined with empowering and provocative economic policies would be good for the country, good for the poor, and good for the conservative brand. it wasn't that long ago that republicans like jack kemp, newt gingrich, and george w. bush relentlessly advocated for solving poverty. if republicans are smart they will shake off the dust from the democrats war on women campaign. martin, it's all yours. >> it's tuesday february 19th, and republicans, republicans, where for art thou republicans? the president has a message for you. >> if congress allows this meat cleaver approach to take place, it will jeopardize our military readiness, emergency responders, border patrol a

matter like what's happening with the economy. i have no idea what bobby jindal is doing but he's a little off base here. >> that's a fair condemnation. jonathan, paul ryan says he truly, honestly doesn't any if he's going to run for president in 2016. if that's the case though, then maybe he should tell his friends because one of them recently told politico and i'm quoting that ryan has no interest in the sheer grind of campaigning. it's hard to see him having what it takes. jonathan, if that's how his friends are talking about him now, what will his enemies say if mr. ryan does decide to throw his hat in the ring? >> well, they will say much worse, but if all the people we've been talking about as potential candidates, paul ryan is the one that has a legitimate claim to run. he's young, very smart, has his budget plan that's been passed twice and ignored an equal number of times. >> and derided by virtually every economist who says the math doesn't add up but now he's going to reduce the deficit and achievements not in 30 but in 10 careers but carry on. >> also add $6 trillion
